VIDEO: Seeking The Cure – Timothy Ray Brown Addresses “Hawaii To Zero” Conference
More than 130 people attended the Hawaii To Zero (H20) Conference at the John A. Burns School of Medicine (JABSOM) on December 5, 2015 to hear remarks from arguably one of the world’s bravest patients. Timothy Ray Brown, first identified as “The Berlin Patient”, is the only person on earth to have been cured of HIV. He could have remained anonymous, as he was in the scientific journal which first reported his cure.
Instead, Mr. Brown introduced himself to the world, and dedicated his life to helping ensure that he is not the only person ever cured of HIV.
Here, in full, we present his speech. If you listen to it from beginning to end, you, too likely will recognize his great courage. And how he inspires others, including the Hawaii Center for AIDS at JABSOM, to find that cure that will work for each of the millions who suffer from the HIV and the ravages of AIDS.
